        Oedipus At Colonus

Oedipus At Colonus

Oedipus at Colonus builds on the events in Sophocles' earlier Oedipus the King. Stained by the unwitting crimes of his past, a blind and aging Oedipus roams the earth in exile from the city that once hailed him as a savior. Happening upon the sacred grove prophesied as his final resting place, he prepares to enter the next life and put his troubled history behind him. at the very moment of this seeming deliverance, warring factions from the city that once banished Oedipus try to compel his return, hearing from an oracle that his presence now offers supernatural protection. Oedipus resists them, determined in his final moments to remove himself from worldly corruption and strife. Written by Sophocles in his 90th year, Oedipus at Colonus is Sophocles' final, conciliatory reflection on the human condition: Hobbled by baseness yet capable of transcendence
